Born in Italy, Swami Nirvanananda Saraswati travels the globe carrying only his guitar, harmonium and a daypack. A follower of Paramahnsa Yogananda, he is a member of IndiaÃ¢â�¬ï¿½s very ancient Dashnami Vedanta Order of monks. Artfully blending eastern and western elements, SwamijiÃ¢â�¬ï¿½s extraordinary talent and sweet songs of devotion open the heart and rouse the soul. These are the pure sounds of a pure heart. Recorded live, this CD captures the energy and spontaneity of traditional call/response kirtanÃ¢â�¬ï¿½s beautiful and passionate offering to the Divine.
